Hollywood South Absent at Oscars
Hollywood South had a great run at the Oscars. First, there was the feel good story of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore.

However, when nominations were released today (1.15), Louisiana was conspicuously missing.

Film Review: Fury
By Jason Raymond
Psychokinesis describes what happens in contemporary war movies as well as anything else I can think of. During the many battle sequences of Fury you are mesmerized by all the CGI pyrotechnics, complex sound, and quick edits that transport you inside an M4 Sherman tank. For about twenty-five years [1942-1977], America churned out movies about World War Two when much of the audience actively participated in the conflict to some degree. Yet the technology underpinning filmmaking never could achieve - what? technical accuracy? - the sheer spellbinding visuals in this movie.
